Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) COO Andrew Kautz announced today (September 9) that Nashville music industry veteran Mike Craft has joined BMLG as Senior Vice President of Finance. In this newly created role Craft will work directly with the Finance, Royalties and Licensing departments and report to Kautz.

“There are very few industry leaders with the experience and integrity that Mike exhibits,” said Kautz. “As Big Machine grows, it’s essential that we add team members that not only understand where our industry has been but also have the vision of what it can be. His passion for our mission and his broad industry knowledge will be an asset to BMLG.”

“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the most creative and the most successful record company in Nashville,” said Craft. “I am humbled and honored with the privilege of being part of this winning team.”

Craft exited his most recent role as Senior Vice President, Finance & Operations for Sony Music Nashville in early August where he served from 2011, responsible for overseeing the finances and operations of the label group’s proprietary record labels (RCA Nashville, Arista Nashville and Columbia Nashville). He joined Sony in a VP role in 2008. Prior to that Craft was the Chief Operating Officer for Provident Music Group.

Craft is currently serving as President of the Leadership Music Board of Directors.
